Schedule Optimization for Generators
Power Production and Schedule Optimization
Optimizing the production of a distributed asset through a VPP can result in a significant revenue growth. Depending on the asset type and the market various different options for optimization are possible. In consultation with our analysts and traders, our algorithms develop a schedule for your asset that allows you to take advantage of price spreads at the short-term power exchange. This can range from a weekly schedule, a daily optimization or a peak-load operation that is based on the quarter of an hour of the spot market. You decide according to the parameters of your asset, how you want to optimize your operation.
- Individual schedules for your asset: All asset specific parameters are considered: The specific requirements of your asset (gas storage, minimum power production, etc.) are taken into account by our experts for establishing your schedule.
- Full control: You decide which functions can be controlled by our control system. This includes the maximum number of starts & stops, power limits for steering your asset, and many more.
- Highly secure M2M communication: In order to provide maximum security, all data exchange between your asset and the control system are only established via an encrypted mobile-connection. Our redundant server topology guarantees maximum availability and connection to the VPP.

Schedule Optimization & Flexible Rates for Consumers
Reduce Costs through Flexible Power Consumption
Depending on how flexibly your processes can be implemented, you can choose between different power rates. We guarantee you a fixed upper price limit - under no circumstances you will pay more than in a standard rate.
Take your Time
With Take your Time, Next Kraftwerke offers a power rate with three different levels of flexibility. The customer can choose between six fixed times zones with variable pricing, twelve fixed time zones or 24 time zones.
Best of 96
With Best of 96, the power rate is optimized against the price fluctuations of the intraday market. Each quarter of an hour gets continuously optimized for the best possible power rate. Of course, all within the customer's restrictions. A price cap guarantees that the rate doesn't exceed a defined maximum. "Best of 96" helps customers to save up to 25 % of their previous energy costs.
